Rua do Ouvidor

Rua do Ouvidor is a narrow street, which runs from the Largo de São Francisco on Rua Alfred Agache, in the Center. In the stretch that runs from Rua Primeiro de Março to Alfred Agache, the street is closed to vehicle traffic – and why this is the snippet more interesting of the street.

Rua do Ouvidor has a special importance. Is a historic Street, and it is still an old mansions that deserves to be seen; and also the beautiful Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Lapa of the merchants.

Another reason why the Rua do Ouvidor awakens interest is the fact that she has become a Bohemian stronghold of the city, which acquires life when the workday comes to an end – especially in the stretch reserved for pedestrians mentioned above. Happy hour, in the street is a meeting point of cariocas, that spread by tables (outdoors, in the middle of the street) of the numerous bars and restaurants there installed. Looks like a big party.

On Saturdays, fortnightly, Rua do Ouvidor is stage of Samba do Ouvidor – event that takes place for more than 10 years and is already a tradition. Samba do Ouvidor is organized by the Dry Leaf Bookstore and takes place on the street, in front of the store. The presentations are free and attract hundreds of people.

A passage in the history

Rua do Ouvidor has this name because it lived the Oidor-mor Manoel Pinto Mosque penalty. In Colonial Brazil, the ouvidor-mor was one of the three helpers of the General Government, responsible for Legal Affairs of the colony – a very important person. The population began to refer to the street as Rua do Ouvidor; and in 1746 the name was officially awarded.

The street was initially a path which gave access to warehouses (warehouses) of the old port of Rio, located where today lies the Centro Cultural dos Correios.

It was with the arrival of the Royal family in 1808, that the street gained importance, attracted merchants of all types and became the most important street of the city and luxurious. Most of the newspapers of the city were located at Rua do Ouvidor.

Tiradentes was hosted in one of their pensions; the Duke of Caxias in another. Olavo Bilac, Emílio de Menezes and his group of Bohemian intellectuals used to meet in late afternoons in Rua do Ouvidor.

Weekend roadmap: end of the world

Throughout the year of 2012, we hear stories about such a Mayan legend that predicts the end of the world to which we are accustomed to this Friday, March 21. Not much is known details; as will happen, the exact time or how to troubleshoot, are still unknowns. Once thing is certain: If the world is going to end, we die having fun!

Friday, March 21

A lot of people don't believe it, think it's mysticism, superstition or just a silly story. But then comes the question: what if the world really end?! Where would you like to be?! Lapa and its energy constagiante can be a good thing. Better still if it is listening to the sounds of other wizarding world Hermeto Pascoal.

If the world is going to end, it's better we go trying to say goodbye and enjoy. After thinking about the place, it's nice to think of the people. For their last night on Earth, nothing like friends gather to listen to the greatest hits of world history! This is the last party of her life.

"Announced and guaranteed/the world would end/because of this/home/my people began to pray ...". Music Adriana Calcanhoto, the people felt that the best remedy was to ask for help for the man from up there. If you disagree that solution, and believes that their last night in need of good music, plenty of drinks and nice people, their place is the dance of Zeh Pretim.

If even after all this, you are not yet convinced that it's worth to take this night as if it were the last of his life, we'll send you to the apocaralho! Here is everyone little caring with this story of Apocalypse, just want to enjoy the four best parties in town!

Truth or lies, one thing is certain: in the year 2012 there were some unbelievable facts. Corinthians won the Libertadores, Roberto Carlos released a new song and who never died is dying. With or without the order, is almost mandatory we celebrate facts so daring.

Saturday, April 22

Halley's Comet in 1910, the Millennium Bug, in 2000, nothing came of it, the long-awaited 12/21/2012 is gone; and nothing in the world to end. Not only was Nostradamus, Pat Robertson and mother Dinah who erred; It seems that the Maya also made a mistake in any of the calculations. What matters most is that we now have a whole life ahead! We'll dance until sunrise in the best visual of the River.

The world did not end, but summer has arrived-sharp as ever. Therefore, the best thing to do is leave, thank life and enjoy the sunny days! The Praça XV will give three perfect reasons to leave home before dark: roda de choro, samba; all free!

After the summer, the most awaited season is the Carnival. The staff of the Batuque Samba Club, already knowing that life would continue on day 22, prepared the best celebrations, with a lot of samba, sweat and beer. You will be at the Carnival!

"Because the world is not over ..." think that this is the perfect excuse for you to forgive for whatever bullshit you might have done yesterday. The left is out to celebrate another night of life and joy with the best visual of the world: Rio de Janeiro!

Go through one end of the world is almost like being born again, and be born equals birthday. This Saturday, the Eletrobase commemorates the two reasons: his birthday 13 years and not end of the world. The party promises to be in high style.

Check out the full schedule !

Sunday, March 23

If life goes on good terms new plans for a new year. Nothing like think about it in a dance accompanied by a cold beer. And the best: when you get tired of thinking about the future, can play on the track and enjoy the present at the sound of the Mc Marcinho.

If you think that your life deserves a celebration in high style, the best option is the show of Stevie Wonder and Gilberto Gil. The breadth and depth of the music of these two greats will you make sure that life is beautiful. So beautiful that it's small fortune of R$800. A toast to life!
